About the blog’s change of name

Newer visitors to this site may not know that for several years this blog was simply known as All Things Counter Terrorism.  Last month I decided to change the name of the blog in order to prevent my blog being associated with what has come to pass for counter terrorism, much of which is in violation of universal human rights and democratic principles.  As I said in an earlier post, which further explains this decision (and is part seven in a series of posts about children, jihad, counter terrorism and dehumanization):

It may not mean much in the grand scheme of things. But it is what it is: the protest of one former analyst turned academic and public commentator, who’s sick and tired of watching what are in my view amoral, legally questionable, and counterproductive practices that go against democratic principles and universal human rights being justified and enacted as “counter terrorism.”
